My rooms are alive with energy
Packets of my mother’s energy woven into a blanket, a painting, something embroidered.
A coloring from my son’s childhood
A woven basket from a friend
Handmade soap and beaded bracelets
Tea, hand picked and packaged
Christmas ornaments the children made
Personal, handwritten Christmas cards
A poem and cookies…

All the handcrafted things
Give off a special light, a glow
For eyes that can see
And warmth–like a hug
For bodies that can feel
They are healing

Warm someone
Give a packet of your energy
Love is
Presents full of presence
…or your presence
